Mecklenburg County Offers Free COVID-19 Home Disinfecting Service for Seniors:
Mecklenburg County’s Department of Social Services (DSS) has partnered with Bio-One to offer a free one-time COVID-19 professional disinfecting service to residents who are 60 years of age or older. Bio-One will apply a CDC/EPA-approved chemical to all surfaces, doorknobs, handles, light switches and high traffic areas of the home. The chemical is safe for pets and children.While there is no cleaning method that guarantees total elimination of the virus, Bio-One’s cleaning protocol can help reduce the spread and threat of coronavirus. Participants must be a resident of Mecklenburg County, 60 years of age or older, and able to leave their home for approximately three hours while services are rendered .
